Treatment Options for Submissive Urination
Treatment of dog submissive urination or incontinence should include a visit to your veterinarian to eliminate the possibility of a health problem. Health problems that can cause incontinence include anatomical abnormality and bladder infection. If there are no health problems, accept that your dog is urinating because he or she feels anxious. Establish calm in your household.
Calm your dog with Adaptil for Dogs
, which contains calming pheromones that help your dog feel like he or she is back with his or her mother. Plug in Adaptil for Dogs a half hour before you leave your home and leave it on while you're away. As your pet becomes less anxious, use the product for shorter and shorter periods.
Use calming herbs, such as Composure Liquid MAX or Quiet Moments, or try a homeopathic remedy like HomeoPet Anxiety Relief. Omega 3 fatty acids, such as The Missing Link Ultimate Skin & Coat, Nordic Naturals Omega-3 Pet and Brite Coat Chews may also help, since they promote brain nutrition, learning, and appropriate behavior.
